GAME of Thrones fans may have to wait a full year for the final season of the hit show but in the meantime they can get their fix staying at a specially themed ice hotel in Finland.
HBO Nordic has partnered with Lapland Hotels to create the Game of Thrones hotel, which is sculpted out of snow and ice.
Appropriately named the SnowVillage, each of the 10 rooms in the hotel feature an ice sculpture such as a ferocious white walker with glowing blue eyes, an icy replication of Braavos’ Hall of Faces and a life-size iron throne.
Guests can sleep on a bed completely made of ice and are given thermal sleeping bags to help them stay warm.
However, guests are recommended to only stay one night due to the temperatures which can dip to -5C.
Overnight rates start at $400 and the hotel is part of a larger resort that includes a movie theatre, a chapel (for those wanting to say ‘I do’), and restaurant and bar carved out of ice.
The hotel’s website claims around 20 million kilos of snow and 350,000 kilos of ice were used to construct the 20,000 square metre village.
The SnowVillage is set to be open until April 30.
